Dr M: Shared Prosperity Vision 2030 will eradicate poverty

PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said the strategies outlined by the government in the Shared Prosperity Vision 2030 will help the poor to come out of poverty.

He said these strategies to help the poor to come out of poverty are crafted to bridge the gap between the haves and have-nots and the races.

Through these efforts and government assistance in the form of loans and training related to business, Mahathir said he is confident that the poor would be able to raise their income level.

“The poor should embrace the government’s suggestions to help them come out of poverty. Their lives can improve, their income increase when they endeavour to help themselves.

“If their problems cannot be solved with only one source of income, then we need to find alternative sources of income for them,” he said, when addressing the monthly assembly of the Prime Minister’s Department staff here today.

Mahathir also urged civil servants to provide information and guidance to the poor so that they can escape from the clutches of poverty.
